“Sir,” the invalid replied, “I have no one to help me into the pool when the water is stirred. While I am trying to get in, someone else goes down ahead of me.” John 5:7
The invalid does not reply to Jesus. Is this a reason – or an excuse? Today you are invited to consider whether any reluctance you may have to follow Jesus is caused by a reason – or an excuse. What is holding you back? How can you take action to side-step any delays in your response to Him? Who can help you? Ask God if you don’t know – and ask Him to show you the way. There may be something you can do you have not yet thought about.
May God bless you with inspiration as you seek to overcome any hesitation you may have about following Him today.
